DXG Luxe 720p camcorders
DXG has launched a new series of camcorders, the Luxe Collection, geared for the style-conscious. Each of the devices is capable of capturing 720p video at 30fps, along with 8-megapixel stills. Users can view the live video on a 3" LCD screen that can be rotated or closed against the camera body, while an HDMI output can be used for playback on a television.
The camera does not offer optical zoom, although 3X digital zoom is available for both movies and stills. Users can power the device with a NP40 rechargeable battery or four AAA cells.
The DXG-Soho features an argyle pattern and leather accents, with a choice between pink or blue color schemes. The DXG-Riviera offers a quilted pattern and texture, with silver or bronze details and color choices including pink, white or black.
The Soho and Riviera camcorders are each available now for $150.
